About Dr.Ratan Bhattacharjee's view of his Poetry
Dr.Ratan Bhattacharjee , the poet of love sings out so spontaneously in poem after poem. It can be said about his poems “No man hath walked along our roads with step /So active, so inquiring eye, or tongue/So varied in discourse.”He made all love experiences his own. His poems are not poems about little children who win good-conduct prizes. They are poems of the agonies of life, poems about tragic severance, poems about failure and mostly about love, the most vital passion in human heart. They range through the virtues and the vices with the magnificent boldness of Rumi poems. Dr/Ratan is one of the very few poets who, echoing the Creator, have declared that the world is good and Love is best. His sense of the goodness of it even in foulness and in failure is written over half of his poems... He was born with a passion for loving.His love of beauty in men and women , in natute and life made his poems vitalized. So impartially and eagerly he did it, that borrowing Oscar Wilde’s words one may feel compelled to comment : “"Taken as a whole the man was great," .
